86-year-old teaches himself how to knit so he can make cozy, warm hats for NICU babies
Thanks to Ed Moseley, a resident at Dogwood Forest Assisted Living in Acworth, Georgia, more than 300 premature born babies in the NICU at Northside Hospital in Atlanta are nice and cozy thanks to their custom-made knitted hats.
And the best part? Ed taught himself how to knit to make these hats just in time for the holiday season.
“I prevailed on my daughter to get a kit, and it comes with the right size loom and the right tools to help you knit one,” Moseley informed ABC News. “I just followed the instructions. It was easy. Somehow I had never knitted, and I always associated knitting with a bunch of needles but this looked pretty doable for me. I went through two or three before I came out with a good finished product.”
